    If Steam was updating, you won't be able to download anything else. Actually, you won't be able to do anything.

    You should change your download area. First, open up Steam. Then click on 'Steam'(on the top left corner) and then 'settings'. Go to the 'Downloads+Cloud' tab. Change the 'Download region' to wherever is closest to where you are.

    Change 'Approximate speed of your internet connection' to 256kbps.
